"When you think things are bad
when you feel sour and blue,
when you start to get mad...
Just do what I do!"
"Just tell yourself, Duckie,
you're really quite lucky!
Some people are much more...
oh ever so much more...
oh muchly much -much more
unlucky than you!"
For suppose that you lived in that forest in France,
where the average young person just hasn't a chance
to escape from the perilous pants-eating-plants!
But your pants are safe! You're a fortunate guy.
And you ought to be shouting,
"HOW LUCKY AM I?"
So that's what I'm doing, not just for the pants
(Against Aussies, French forests just don't stand a chance)
No, the reason I'm making a great song and dance
Is to thank these 3 women for making my day
And to give them back joy in my personal way
To Faerwillow at Serendipity, Thank you for the Kreativ Blogger award. Your own blog inspires me with positive, uplifting thoughts to guide each day. May you benefit from the brightest blessings that you so generously wish for others. So pleased I fell or stumbled upon you!
To Jeanne at Collage of Life, Mille mercis for the Sunshine Award twice in 2010. I must be doing something right ;-) Jeanne, I have become accustomed to having your honest but gentle opinions and eye for truly beautiful things filling my world - to the extent that I can't imagine life without you... Warning to others - do not 'just pop over for a quick read' of Jeanne's blog when you have 'work' to do - all ideas of working fly straight out the window when faced with subjects such as beauty, joy and the odd spa retreat in Provence!
To Maurie at This Northwest Life, I am honoured to have been bestowed with the Happy 101 award from a fellow nature lover, hiker, brocanteuse and ecochick like you. If you wanted to know 10 amazingly interesting things about me ... you can get the puffed up long version here.
I know the goal is to pass these on to other bloggers who inspire and show particular signs of being globally head and shoulders above all the heads and shoulders. The problem is, I'm bedazzled, confuzzed and confounded by the sheer number of entertaining, informative, hilarious, touching, talented people there are in cyberspace sharing their lives with us. So much so that I am completely unable to reduce them to a mere 10 or 12. So in this post HERE, I suggested a treasure hunt.
Rather than take my word for it ... I invite you to step out into the complete unknown and meet a few of those lovely (of course!) people who follow my blog. I dare you - choose 1 per day for the next 12 days and blog about who you found. I'll drop by and say hi when you do!
Phew, I'm feeling quite humble tonight
Thank you for the vote of confidence and happiness
I'm taking this as an indication that I'm doing something right ...
Now, a lucky girl like me should get some sleep.
And while I still have my wits, and my pants about me
I will bid you all adieu for ce soir
